On this day, April 30, 2014 individuals, families, workplaces, schools and organizations are coming together to practice simple activities to stay safe before, during, and after four types of hazards−floods, wildfires, tornadoes and hurricanes. . America’s PrepareAthon! is designed to help individuals in your city become more prepared by engaging the whole community. The campaign seeks to increase the number of individuals who: understand which disasters could happen in their community; know what to do to be safe and mitigate damage, take action to increase their preparedness, and participate in community resilience planning. With a research based design, the campaign delivers preparedness information through trusted community members, promotes peer-to-peer discussions within and across community networks, supports behavior change through experiential learning, and provides platform to make preparedness a social norm.
